Teaching with Lincoln

President Lincoln the last week of his life

Welcome to Teaching with Lincoln!

Teaching with Lincoln was created by Teaching with Primary Sources consortium members as a tool for educators of any grade level or discipline. It is our hope that this site will become a repository of Lincoln related resources for teachers, especially highlighting those which incorporate the digitized primary sources of the Library of Congress.

The site is divided into three main sections: two timelines that represent events during the life of President Lincoln Personal and Professional, and Additional Resources which are items that don't fit into one space on the timeline . After selecting a timeline, you may click on a particular year to find links to Teacher Resources, Student Resources, Library of Congress Primary Sources and Other Resources.

This site is a living document and we hope it will grow! If you would like to recommend a link for either timeline, please feel free to let us know! We are always looking for new ways to bring information about President Lincoln to our students and colleagues.  Some of the resources have been created by educators participating in Teaching with Primary Sources professional development.  Others are activities that incorporate digitized primary sources from the Library of Congress. Lessons and activities outside of the Library of Congress and Teaching with Primary Sources sites have not been vetted by this site.

The Teaching with Primary Sources Program works with colleges and other educational organizations to deliver professional development programs that help teachers use the Library of Congress's rich reservoir of digitized primary source materials to design challenging, high-quality instruction.
